Good luck in the marathon. Also, "guess" statements are just that - statements. Please punctuate as such.

Ann Marie tagged this It's a MARATHON

They say fund raising is a marathon (not a sprint) and you are proving that to be true! I just pledged. Congratulations and good luck to Sean! (For a split second, I wondered if YOU were going to run in your uniform!) Hope you have some good PR lined up at the finish line!

So are you running in your dress I suppose?

@ Princess B.

Yes. Really.

MBT tagged this Mother's Love

For Sheena and Sean's Mom - you must be very proud of your young ones. Job well done !!! Oh, and darling knee highs :~)

CK tagged this Inspirational by design

Your project is so commendable. Kudos ad infinitum. Also impressive is the tolerance shown for the obnoxious, holier-than-thou comments that crop up (that means you "Grammarian", and that crazy person who pretends to find fault w/your legs). Seems they're quite acutely missing the point. It is so good that there are people of honor and meritorious action like yourself on this planet, to help balance out the wing nuts.

Irene tagged this Heart Socks!

Good luck to Sean! I like the heart socks and the women headband.

@ CK

I'm not saying she isn't doing a wonderful thing. In fact, there's nothing of that nature in my post. I just commended her brother for running the marathon and provided a little grammatical insight out of respect for the English language. I'm just trying to help Sheena make this the best project it can be. GRAMMAR IS FASHION.

Payal tagged this Aww!

Sean, Sheena and socks from mum - Go Matheikens! Adore the socks!

Bee tagged this Try Harder

I'm not really feeling this outfit. The arm warmers and those shoes really ruin the dress. I'm so glad your brother is supporting you. All the way from London?! That's really nice of him.

Eloise tagged this Cute

My husband is running the Soweto Marathon in Johannesburg, SA this weekend in support of the fight against getting old and inactive!

yobe tagged this Cute

jessa tagged this Brave

Scully tagged this Run Sean Run!

I just pledged $26.2, but am pretty sure I'll be donating $52.4:) Thanks for giving that shirt an other life, looks way better on you than in my drawer!

Anonymous tagged this sporty

looks sporty.Now, we know U have a Mum,a big brother sean and if i am right a little sis (who gifted that scarf-choker)who support you.Just wondered no mention of your dad?.Good luck to your Big Brother


I just pledged, and I have a feeling it's going to be doubled! That headband is so cute on you, I love it. Good luck, Sean!

Mariah tagged this @ Grammarian

Guess who might want to relax and understand the difference between rule-bound, formal English/punctuation and the also-correct language used in popular culture (referred to as "common usage" by scholars of the English language)? Yes, "Grammar is fashion" -- and both change/evolve over time . . . Relax and enjoy the amazing creativity on this site . . .

@ Mariah, et. al.

What is everyone's deal? I've complimented the great things Sheena and her brother are doing for the children of India. Bravo, once again! I was just stating some facts in a helpful manner. No posed hatred. Sheena, I'd like to see you dedicate a day to grammar -- maybe some cute punctuated accessories, bookworm glasses, and an oxford (comma) shirt.

Payal tagged this Go UP family!

Haha..I'm loving the heat, passion and family introductions going on here! IT'S ALIVE! :D Sheena, I hope you're not completely worn out...didn't see a Thu post - you should take a day off! Stay in your pjs all day, and maybe have an evening 'home-wear' outfit! Cheers! You go, girl!


@Anonymous – Dad is very much involved and has blessed me with his creative genes, I just don't fit into his sweaters or socks, hence the lack of donor shoutouts :-P
